Editors' Review


Although it's hardly the best Web browser out there, Puffin Web Browser Free does provide you with something different when it comes to browsing the Web. This free app can bring PC-style Web browsing directly to your Android device.

The main browser interface of the app is a bit reminiscent of Android's default Web browser, with pop-up settings and only the address bar on top of the screen. However, you'll instantly notice that there are two more buttons below its main interface. The one on the left is the mouse button. When clicked, it displays a "mouse pad" area, where you can use your fingers as if on a laptop's touch pad. The right button is the keyboard button. It calls up your device's default keyboard at any time, without the need to click on an input bar first. When accessing pages, we found that they loaded very, very quickly, at more than twice or even three times the speed of the default Android browser. Additional buttons that pop up on the left and right can sometimes be difficult to call up, but this isn't a problem since there are other options for easy access.

Puffin Web Browser Free is the browser to use if you want the PC-browsing experience on your mobile device. The only thing that we didn't like about it was that in comparison with other Web browsers such as Opera Mini, which is less than 1MB, it has a high storage-space requirement of more than 7MB.

"Fast as flash!"

Perfect for my specific needs


I haven't encountered any problems


I wish I had known about this browser years ago. I had stopped playing my favorite FB flash based game because I'm mostly on my phone or Ipad now and even when playing on my PC it had become SO tedious because of the big lag to load every page. Puffin free is unbelievably fast going from page to page and I absolutely love the little transparent tools you can bring up, the touchpad and keyboard, very unobtrusive and easy to move around and utilize. For my specific purpose, this browser is a breath of fresh air!

"The best Flash browser for Android"

Not only it can play Flash games and videos, but it is really fast. I use it for news reading and online shopping. It works really well with facebook website comparing to the facebook app. I wrote them once about the facebook authentication. Here is they reply

"Puffin Browser is a remote browser. By leveraging the cloud computing infrastructure, we can serve webpages much faster than what your device is capable to handle locally, and support complex web technologies that may not be supported on your device (such as Flash). Currently, all of our servers are outside UK. That's why even if you're physically located in London, it shows you the IP of our servers."


It only supports cloud download for Dropbox. It is good if it can integrate with Google Drive.


It is a really fast mobile Flash browser, and it's also the most secure browser I have ever used. (You may refer to their FAQ #19 for more detail about its security and privacy.

used it once, (free version) and it was great, after that, not so good


went to use it again, and log into facebook, (by using the button on homescreen) facebook LOCKED MY ACCOUNT said i was logging in from a strange location... Indonesia??????? so i had to go into my laptop, to unlock my fb account, and get my account back.
figured i'd try it again... ha! facebook locked my account again, as it said i was trying to log in from INDONESIA. It just so happens, i was logging in from the USA.


seems like a good idea, but in reality, unless it quits trying to hack my fb account, it's a bad deal
